Our generation has become lazy and in the process forgotten what it is like to date.
And yet, you’ll fuck it up by doing what we all do — asking those pesky, persistent two words: “what if.” What if there’s someone better out there?
I think I’d much prefer it this way until I hold hands with someone who makes me feel like the stars tangled themselves between our fingers.
Elias came off like he liked his girls well-dressed, wild, and raven-haired. A week ago, I’d chopped my un-wavy, un-beachy, brown hair down to a pixie cut and transformed into the anti-hookup, asexual, queen of New Jersey. If LA didn’t like it, screw ’em.
Sexual passion is a huge part of a relationship. Make love to each other, get a little risky, have some fun. I know schedules get in the way, but make time!
We have conditioned ourselves to be flattered by empty gestures, like getting a text back before midnight and hanging out in the daylight and receiving the fire emoji on an Instagram picture.

Fall in love with someone who values you and doesn’t make you denigrate your dreams and needs for them.
We are just trying to be kind to ourselves and understand our lives by attempting to create some internal space for peace. Our behavior can be highly mistaken and we are often misunderstood.
I have to, because I want it all with you.
